How might a living will be used, or not, to guide an individual's end of life decisions?

Legal and Ethical Principle in health Care & Quality in Health Care 

(Benchmark Assignment) Applying Decision-Making Models in Health Care.

This is a benchmark assignment.

Choose an ethical decision-making model from among the following three discussed in the lecture and other readings: Nash’s 12 Questions for Moral Choices, Kidder’s Ethical Checkpoints, and Uustal’s Ethical Decision-Making Model. Apply your chosen model to the following ethical dilemma:

Your terminally ill patient told you at her last visit that, since her pain could no longer be completely controlled by any means, and in her opinion she was just waiting to die, she was going to Holland to participate in its physician-assisted suicide program.

What would your advice to this patient be? In a 500-750 word paper, include a letter to your patient offering your insights and recommendations regarding this decision.

In addition, following your letter, include a subsection in which you address the following when completing this assignment:

  1. Explain the theory of the chosen ethical      decision-making model as it relates to this scenario. What effect have      this and other models had on medical practice over the years?
  2. Should a doctor be able to end the life of an      individual who is suffering and who has no hope of recovery? Why or why      not?
  3. How might a living will be used, or not, to guide an      individual’s end of life decisions?
  4. How does the use of technology complicate the dying      process?

Include at least three scholarly, peer-reviewed references from the GCU Library to support your positions.
